Technical expert Bob Dolph selects a list of valuable technical training resources to get interested prospective low voltage technicians on the right track and to help experienced integrators.
As with any profession, we have rules and regulations. Some are solid and set in stone, others not so much. Still, it’s important for any serious systems engineer to understand what’s what and how to follow them.
What got me thinking about this topic is that I recently came across an inexperienced alarm technician on YouTube who was self-taught and asked, “Where can I get low voltage training on local and national codes?” So I thought it was a good time for a review.
Having been in the industry for some time myself, I have some thoughts on where and what to look for when it comes to low voltage and safety systems training. However, if you are just starting out or even have the prospect of becoming a systems engineer, you probably have no idea where to start.
